Young Friends of the Earth Europe's steering group meets

Young Friends of the Earth Europe's steering group met face to face this week for the first time since their election in March 2011. We spent three intensive days discussing how we would organise the upcoming Durban in Brussels event and our training event in Denmark, how we could improve the steering groups' internal work and online meetings, as well as the next steps we need to take before the YFoEE Network Gathering in Switzerland in 2012.

We stayed in a lovely Belgian farm, and were kindly shown how the cows are milked using modern techniques. We also made it into the local newspaper when we met one of the local Friends of the Earth Flanders groups, who were presenting their annual pimpampoentje award.
